Conventional salt & pepper mills often create mess by leaving excess grounds on surfaces when placed down. The simple, elegant design of Milltop avoids this problem as the grinding mechanism is at the top of the mill, which means any excess grounds fall back inside the unit after use. The innovative design also does away with a long central spindle for the grinding mechanism, which increases its capacity and makes it much easier to fill. To use, simply invert the mill and twist the base to grind. To adjust the grinding size, simply rotate the stainless-steel top.
